What is Kitten Kindergarten?
Kitten Kindergarten is a socialization, training, and education program. The program focuses on integrating your kitten into your family, teaching your kitten manners, and instructing owners on feline behavior, as well as how to recognize and prevent common behavior and health problems.
Kitten socialization is accelerated when compared to canines. The sensitive period of socialization (when a kitten is most able to learn appropriate social behavior) occurs between the 2nd and 7th week of life, social play develops from 6 to 12 weeks old, with social fighting and fearful playing starting at Week 14. Socializing kittens is essential to having a well-mannered adult cat.
